“I never really know when an idea for a new painting is going to happen. I’m usually attracted to scenes that depict serene moments of reflection. While stepping away from the over use of a camera and sketching from life, I observe my subjects in the field and sketch a quick gesture, while I depend on my memory for the colors and values. My goal is to convey a sense of place by capturing its fleeting light as well as the distinct rhythms and patterns to enhance the design of the composition.
